The Tater Family

Some families make church their home. Others find other uses for the church. Take the notorious Tater family, for example. Perhaps you’ve met some of them.

· The chief of the clan is old Dick Tater, who insists on running everything in church.

· His brother Ro Tater keeps everything in a spin.

· Aunt Agi Tater has a knack for stirring up trouble;

· and her husband, Irri Tater, is always getting under someone’s skin.


The next generation of Taters has its own characteristics.

· Hesi Tater and his wife, Vege Tater, would just as soon wait until next year whenever a new project is suggested.

· Aunt Imi Tater would love to create the first generic church.

· Devas Tater announces constantly that everyone in the church is doomed,

· Her husband Poten Tater promises he can lead the church out of trouble.
